Time Zone

G

I am asked numerous times a day if I want to change my time zone. I live in Omaha, Nebraska- I thought that I had set the zone correctly. How can I turn off this question?
Thanks,

Hi,

Please always accept this question, as it can cause issues with Todoist. Please make sure that your mobile device, Todoist.com's settings, and any other devices (desktop) are set to the same timezone.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon -

I'm also having this issue. It's asking me to reset my time zone to GMT-7:00, but I live on the East Coast (I did recently travel to the west coast, though, which is when this problem started). I obviously don't want to change the time zone on my computer and phone to reflect a time zone I don't live in. Is there another way around this? When I set it for East Coast, it's actually automatically reclassifying tasks from "Today" to "Tomorrow," which is frustrating.

Thank you,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Unfortunately, there's no way to disable this at the moment. The reminders are there since time zone issue could lead to problem with your tasks thus when it's not setup properly you get a pop to fix it.

Regards,

Clyde

Thanks Clyde. Is there no way to stop today's tasks from being reclassified to tomorrow? This sadly defeats the entire purpose of using Todoist to organize my day.

Hi Jeff,

The only way to make it work and have all dates correct is to always have the correct time zone on all your devices and in Todoist's settings on all devices.

If you don't do that, tasks added or edited while being in a different time zone without adjusting it, will most likely have incorrect dates and/or times if you return and the time on your devices changes back again.

Regards,

Clyde

Ah I see - so this is only affecting tasks I added while in the other time zone. Thanks, that's helpful.

I love Todoist, but really wish you'd fix this so it stops asking me all the time. We should be able to tell it once and have it remember our choice. We can go change it later somewhere else if we want. It's incredibly annoying.
